Lupercalia is a pear yellow with red shimmer and red and green flecks. Two to three coats are recommended. Each bottle contains one or two stainless steel BBs for mixing.

Lupercalia was a very ancient Roman festival, probably originating as a pastoral ritual, meant to purify the city and usher in fertility for the upcoming spring. Taking place in mid-February, it honored Lupercus, the god of shepherds, and Lupa, the she-wolf who suckled the infants Romulus and Remus.

A group of priests known as Luperci assembled in Lupa's cave and sacrificed two goats (symbols of fertility) and a dog. They dressed in loincloths made from the animal skins and cut strips of the skin to make whips. Then, they ran around the boundary of the oldest part of the city and struck the onlookers with their whips. This was supposed to ensure fertility and make childbirth easier, so women and girls would line up to receive a beating!
Directions
Always start with a base coat to extend the life of your manicure and reduce the risk of staining. Apply the recommended number of thin coats, waiting for a few minutes in between. Paint over the tips of your nails to form a seal. Finish with a quick-dry topcoat such as Out the Door or Seche Vite. For bumpy glitter polishes, you may need more than one coat of topcoat for a smooth finish.

To keep your nails and cuticles healthy, we recommend a cuticle balm such as Indigo Bananas!

Three-/four-/five-free polishes may settle over time (a layer of clear liquid will form at the top of the bottle). A good shake should redistribute the pigments completely.
